my breakfast randoms...

before breakfast I finished this watercolour for a little girl called Bree.
she looks like such a sweet creature.
breakfasts are spent chatting and talknig about what we'd like to do during the day...little Miss A always seems to have company whilst eating her breakfast.

I adore the light which pours in the windows in the morning...such perfect painting light!
today I am finishing these...
these having been lying around waiting their turn for a while...I think because they aren't commissions...the urgency isn't there to complete them.
so many people at our Mamas Show were asking if I had a frog and a prince...so here it is...almost completed.

There's no tell all Tuesday spot this week as you can see...
so here are 10 random things you may not know about me:

  • I love Marmite on toast (LOVE LOVE LOVE)

  • I work better under-pressure (which can be frustrating at times)

  • I can't go to sleep at night without going to check on our girls(and I have to kiss their cheeks and tell them I love them)

  • if I won the lottery(as I would need A LOT of money), I would set up a Community Art Centre- painting,crafts,theatre...they're all so theraputic and I believe everybody should dabble in something creative!

  • I used approximately 5% of my shoe collection...but love all of them and find it hard to give them up...soon they'll be Antiques!

  • I miss speaking Spanish and Italian...so if anyone wishes to meet up and is Italian or Spanish...and you live in the GTA...I NEED practice!

  • If I could choose the whole day to be made up of mornings...it would.(I'd scrap afternoons and evenings-as I get so much more done in the mornings)

  • if I wasn't an artist...I would be a Chef

  • I'm a bit of a loner...and love "my" time...if I didn't see anyone for a few days...it wouldn't bother me(is this wierd?)

  • I'd LOVE to have dinner with ALL of you!!!
have a fantastic Tuesday...and if you'd like to post your 10 RANDOMS...please link back to your post in the comments bellow.

i love your breakfast view and those sweet faces (3 of them)! your list is wonderful and i'd love to learn to speak italian - it's so lyrical and spanish, too. i've tried marmite and maybe i should try it, again ;). and, i hope you win the lottery!

too cute your drawings and your little girl. Love your idea of setting up an art-centre. All fingers crossed you hit the jackpot :)

Lovely pictures Char - I have a thing for ladybirds and fairytales.

Nope not weird at all being a loner - I can totally relate.

take care,
